AbstractAnnually, around 850 liver transplantation is performed in Beijing, China. Recently, the new coronavirus pneumonia (COVID-19) caused by 2019 novel coronavirus (2019-nCoV) has affected nearly 200 countries worldwide. 2019-nCov can cause severe lung disease, multiple-organ damage, and significant mortalities.

discussion of the undercount of Covid deaths. And no, death certificates aren't going to let us get a true final tally. They are an excellent example of the reification of data. The cause of death may be given as pneumonia, or even just respiratory arrest, or it may be attributed to some comorbidity and the contribution of the virus to the death may not be noted.
